Thanksgiving is a national holiday celebrated on various dates in the United States. It began as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest of the preceding year. Families normally gather for having lunch together and be thankful for what they have. One of our asssistants, Sarah Yadali from New York, has told us what Thanksgiving means to her.

What First graders did in Thanksgiving day?
First graders in Villakor prepared a Turkey crown. First, they listened to a Thanksgiving story about when was the first time it was celebrated and other curiosities about this day.
After that, they colored a Turkey as they wanted. Then, they cut the turkey’s body and its feathers. Also, they pasted everything on the color craft paper. To finish it, teachers helped them put on the crown.
When all of them wore a Turkey crown on their head, they were telling Sarah why they were grateful.
Finally, everyone joined together to shout they were grateful to the school!
